  • Yes. They were also the first books that took an in-depth look at the background of these paths like one would review history through the lens of the WoD. Things like Mithras and his cult having Dur-An-Ki and whatnot. They have mechanics but they also have a lot of nice fluff and history

  • The only problem with 1 book being all inclusive is it usually isn't. Don't get me wrong I actually love the V20 book for Vampire. And I do think that Rites of the Blood for the V20 system definitely has a place, but the reason I mentioned Blood Magic and Blood Sorcery books is because they have great write ups for many of the blood magics found in the Vampire system and Rites of the Blood and V20 don't delve into them like these two books do. As Cynic01 noted above Thaumaturgy used to be the word used for all of the blood magics, including Thaumaturgy itself. When Vampire 3rd ed came out that...

  • Blood magic: yes, Thaumaturgy: no. Not without said weaseled lessons. If you can get copies of Blood Magic: Secrets of Thaumaturgy and Blood Sacrifice for in depth backgrounds on some existing and new (at the time) paths of blood magic. Not sure about Rites of the Blood as I have it but haven't read it in detail. Most here seem to dislike it but it may be of some use to you for "alternative" blood magics as well as the rituals found in Rites of the Wild...

  • I think it was in Outcasts and then more of it was in A Time of Thin Blood. you'll have to forgive me it's been a long time since I've looked at either of them

  • Caitiff starting with clan specific disciplines: I have no trouble telling my players no as I've done it a number of times in the Sabbat game I ran, online Giovanni game I ran, etc. Just no full stop. Now rules do exist so they can make their own so with some creativity and ST approval feel free to delve down that path.

    Caitiff as Giovanni: as others have pointed out it's possible and they wouldn't exactly be killed on sight. In the Clan Novel there was a ghoul that was highly prized in the Giovanni (a Rossellini to be specific I think) because he had Auspex and that isn't something...

    That was kind of my thought but I totally understood why it was something barely even touched on (gnosis/caerns being the big focal point of Werewolf and cities being for Vampires). But with all of the Dark Ages books and pro-pagan paths and rituals coming out it wouldn't hurt to ask. Even if it was solely from a Mage perspective or Mummy or whatever. WW always seemed like they wanted cross over but to me didn't do a good job of enabling it.
    Definitely strong arguments about Garou being the only ones really but if you don't ask the question you won't know ...

  • Awesome thanks. I usually go conservative to avoid assuming too much and overplaying something. I'll keep that in mind next time it comes up

    Question about the Scry ritual

    Looking for opinions/answers about the scrying thaum ritual. I know it can show visuals but is audio provided as well. I've looked it over but I don't recall it ever specifically saying if it does or not. Per Rites of the Blood pg 153

    Also note: Its doubtful that a pack priest or ductus is going to hold a member's feet to the fire if they missed one vaulderie but wound up participating in some giant city wide event at Palla Grande or some such holiday. Like others have pointed out, the priest is likely going to know so skirting the vaulderie isn't very likely unless they have a really inept priest.

    Although it was fun seeing them play themselves as vampires

    It isn't a renewable resource, not in the sense of readily reusable. It normally takes a long time for it to eventually recharge unless there are other ways of doing so, hence the question. I'm not really concerned with why in so much as I'm curious if there are other ways.

    But from the sound of things I'll probably just have to house rule it, which isn't a big deal but I'd prefer to keep within published rules if possible.

    I'm wondering if blood magic of some kind could. I know that the books state that Ogham is a primitive form of blood magic and they can use it to pull gnosis (not explicitly stated but mechanics wise seems that way) from a caern/node but seems odd that nothing could be done to return it. Like some blood sacrifice or ritual or something.

    That's interesting because I have yet to run into anyone who has watched CR and came away feeling the need to enforce what they saw in a game like that. But there could always be one-offs. To be honest I find that sort of player-strong arming in WoD games far more often.

    But that being said: I didn't care for the blood dice either but apparently it was the Alpha rules for a new version of Vampire (they mentioned it briefly I think in the very beginning and a couple people in the Project Alpha chat confirmed it, which I think The Onyx Path PR person did too.)

    Is that the only way by the books? I thought that maybe Mages or possibly Sorcerers could possibly do it?

    Recharging a Caern

    I know the Garou have a way of recharging a caern but what are other ways of doing that? Has anything changed with the new 20 anniversary editions?
